The RWTH Campuslauf to Go Virtual

April 1st, 2021 | by

Mark your calenders! The RWTH Campuslauf digital is scheduled to begin April 30 – this year as a component of RWTH’s online health week. Building on the success of the virtual Lousberglauf last year, the RWTH Campuslauf digital is the second running event offered by the University Sports Center, or HSZ, online. Peter Lynen, director of the HSZ, is eagerly awaiting the first virtual campus race: “We’ve managed to put together a great alternative for the popular campus race during this still ongoing pandemic.”

The RWTH Campuslauf digital is based on the routes of the original in-person RWTH campus race. As in the face-to-face version, participants in the virtual campus race can choose between three different runs: For amateur and casual runners, there is the Fun Run over a distance of 4.6 kilometers. The Fitness Run is aimed at those a little more ambitious, with a route of 9 kilometers to be covered. There is also a virtual and coronavirus-compliant version of the relay race for those wanting to compete as a team, with four people per team running 2.3 kilometers each.

The virtual RWTH Campuslauf is location-independent. Runners can cover the distances on a course of their own choice, record the run with a fitness app, and later submit the results online to the HSZ. The RWTH Campuslauf digital will run from April 30 to May 9. You can register for the event via the HSZ website  any time between April 19 and May 9.

While the RWTH Campuslauf will take place online, the RWTH FH Sports DAY, unfortunately, has to be canceled.
